Subject: [gnuastro-commits] master b0766af 1/2: Configure script has a new --enable-debug option
Date: Tue, 17 Jul 2018 06:24:29 -0400 (EDT)

branch: master
commit b0766af5a9a60619651e7bfa0900809b9968c57d
Author: Mohammad Akhlaghi <address@hidden>
Commit: Mohammad Akhlaghi <address@hidden>

    Configure script has a new --enable-debug option
    With this new option, the configure script will disable optimization and
    enable debugging flags during the build. This is easier to remember (and
    less buggy) than directly setting CFLAGS at configure time.
